Excellence is a talent or quality which is unusually good and so surpasses ordinary standards. There are many things in this world that reach this level of excellence; Ben and Jerry’s, Starbucks, The Majestic Grill-local Memphis restaurant, just to name a few but how did they get this status of excellence?
At some point there had to be a moment of realization that “I might be on to something here”. Whether these people just had that strong feeling or maybe they heard it from dinner guest, they all figured out that their products could be perfected. “Everybody has talent but ability takes hard work” Michael Jordan. I am sure that everyone mentioned above had a strong passion for preparing delicious. To achieve excellence there has to be a strong passion for what it is that you are trying to accomplish. Without passion the chances of burnout are higher and makes excellence more difficult to achieve. Sometimes, the things that are most easily learned by you maybe your ticket to excellence. The activity that come naturally and just feel like this is the a big part of you. The thing that you want to do, want to learn more about and you would do for free just because you love it that much. When you see others that are doing this, you admire them and want to become better. You lose track of time when you are participating in this activity.
What are these things in your life? What are you willing to sacrifice in order to become excellent at your thing?
